Better Lait Than Never: Waiting for the playoffs is the hardest part

1 year ago
It’s Wednesday afternoon and that means I’ve got a fresh episode of Better Lait Than Never set and ready to guide you through what’s left of the week. In this week’s episode, I looked at the Oilers’ eight-game win streak, still not knowing who we’re going to play in round one, and celebrated Ryan Nugent-Hopkins’ 30th birthday.
To kick off this week’s episode of BLTN, I got started with a look at the Oilers’ playoff situation as we still don’t know who the boys will be playing in round one. While I have personal reasons why I hope the Oilers match up against the LA Kings, the reality is that they could just as easily be playing the Winnipeg Jets. Depending on what happens on Thursday, there are actually a few different ways this first round matchup could play out depending on who beats who and when they get the job done. Either way, no matter who the Oilers face in the first round, I’m beyond excited for the postseason to get going. Moving into the news, I got started with a shout out to my dude, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, as he played in his 800th game with the Edmonton Oilers in last night’s victory over the Colorado Avalanche. Not only was I excited that we kept him forever, but the fact that Nuge hit the milestone only a day before his 30th birthday was also pretty remarkable. I mean, Nuge? 30 years old? Can’t be. From there, I spent a few minutes banging the drum about Stuart Skinner being a deserving candidate for the Calder Trophy as his remarkable season is really the only reason we’re talking about being Stanley Cup contenders. Lastly, I wrapped up the episode with another round of voicemails to get your take on what’s been going on over the last week.
